” More O.S.T. Dramatics ”
*Yes, I know Budy Maglione is two people, but the above photo is so funny that I had to use it…
One of my pet peeves when it comes to Hip Hop production is beats that are laced with FAKE DRAMA….
Hopefully you understand what I’m talking about (second rate spooky sounds, fluffy drum programming, predictable build ups, typical Scarface samples, etc)….If your in the mood for “true to the grain” dramatic frequencies take a listen to my top pick off the CANNIBAL FEROX OST by Budy Maglione…..BLAM,BLAM…
ONE WAY STATIC recently re-released the “CF-OST”…..Don’t sleep.

Like many of the Italian cannibal films, the soundtrack is just as powerful and effective as the disturbing butchery. Cannibal Ferox features a soundtrack that is more 70s cop show than many of its counterparts. The use of funk guitar, bass, rock piano and synthesizer makes for a fun yet still powerful sound. It’s 70s recklessness with an 80s sensibility, perfect for a film that rides the line between two decades. The bulk of the soundtrack was done by Budy-Maglione, a partnership of Roberto Donati and Fiamma Maglione (who also appears in the film). This pair was responsible for collaborating on such films as Eaten Alive (1980) and Daughter of the Jungle (1982)
